  1. The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    KD returns to OKC to meet up with Westbrook, George, and Anthony! It's gonna be a good one!
  2. Star Wars or the Godfather?

    Two of the Godfather movies were great, only one of the Star Wars series was great. Advantage: Godfather
  3. Stoner music

  4. The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    Celtics Warriors game last night was the best game I've seen this year! Old school style, low scoring, tough defense, and lots of grabbing and holding. GS just couldn't BUY a foul call! It's shaping up to be a great season!
  5. Live better than Studio

    Live versions allow for deeper exploration. The Zeppelin stands apart from the rest of the so-called "hard rock" bands because their live approach is more jazz oriented. Entire sections of songs were reserved for improvisation. Plus, I've been listening to the studio albums since 1972, the live jamming keeps me interested. That being said, the studio versions of Ten Years Gone, Tangerine, and Babe I'm Gonna Leave You are about perfect!
  6. Plant's vocals on I'm Gonna Crawl

    It's a great finish to a great album, just listened to it myself...
  7. The later albums?

    Presence has the best of Page and Bonham, booze and dope took it away after that...
  8. What next? AGAIN

    Yup...
  9. The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    So far this year, Harden and Westbrook aren't getting to the line.
  10. The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    Anybody watch the Celtics and Lakers game? It was a good one, Kyrie Irving was on it! It looked like a trip back to the Eighties with those throw-back uniforms too!
  11. Bootlegs

    Soundboards were recorded by the concert crews, both those employed by the band, like Showco, and also by workers at the venues at which they played. That's how so many soundboards were available before Page's "house sitters" ripped off his tapes. I've always suspected someone in the band (looking at YOU Mr. Page!) "leaked" out recordings to keep up interest in the band in the '80's. As far as the Grateful Dead and taping goes, Jerry Garcia once said something like " Once we're done with it, the audience can have it".
  12. Top Five Boots From Each Year 69-77

    1979-1980 Both Copenhagen shows First Knebworth show Frankfort Zurich
  13. It's changed over the years as the quality and availability of Zeppelin bootlegs has increased. Back in the sevendeez, we were thrilled by almost ANY bootleg, now I don't want to listen to poor quality recordings more than once or twice.
  14. The NBA 2017-2018 Thread

    No KD, no Green, no Iguadala, Klay and Steph didn't come back for the second half. We got to see the rookies and they didn't disappoint! Kevon Looney looked great, jumping higher than I've ever seen, it looks like he lost 20 lbs! Jordan Bell had 10 points, 11 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocks!
